My computer could overclock to 164 fsb at 1.8 core v with a 4200. I just popped a 9700 radeon in it and I can complete 3d mark benches unless I drop it down to 163 or 162. Screen is black...I hear a click...and here comes the restart. My PSU is supposedly a 431 watt, but I have concerns that it is not. My vendor is working with me and told me he believes it is a 431, but this clicking has me thinking. Any input?

I've got 2 60 gig maxtor drives, a pioneer slot dvd player and the rest of the system is detailed in the sig

Thx for any help in advance

Sounds like a hard drive to me. Could be a symptom of the PSU though, stess the PSU too hard, the HD's could be starving for power, Have had this happen to me before.
